The hostel is just a storey of a buiding divided into small rooms by plasterboard. Though it's a really nice place because of its owners and the atmosphere. It's also clean and the location is great. The corner rooms are most expensive and they have panoramic windows. You can have free tea, coffee and toasts whole day.

The rooms seriously need ventilation. If you're the type to hang your socks and clothes around the room, you might have a problem with the odor. During the day the room it's so hot and dense to the point of difficulty in breathing.
